After months of massing forces on Ukraine’s border and threatening to launch a new invasion, Russia has been accused of fabricating a pretext for attacking by falsely claiming that Ukraine is planning to attack the Donbas. The international community and Ukraine are working around the clock to deter further Kremlin aggression and stop this eight-year conflict from becoming the deadliest war in Europe in decades. As Russian President Vladimir Putin seeks to force Ukraine to pursue a Moscow-approved national-security and domestic policy, Ukrainians are continuing to assert their independence.
Foreign Minister of Ukraine H.E. Dmytro Kuleba joins the Atlantic Council for an #ACFrontPage conversation about what is at stake in Ukraine, how Ukraine is responding to Russia’s war of aggression, and how the international community can stand with Ukraine on the frontlines of democracy. Ambassador John Herbst, senior director of the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and former US ambassador to Ukraine, moderates a one-on-one conversation with Minister Kuleba.

Europe in crisis
War in Ukraine
In February 2022, Moscow launched an all-out invasion of Ukraine after a months-long military build-up, threatening the country’s sovereignty and its future. This existential moment for the country follows the 2014 Maidan revolution, a nexus for Ukraine’s Europe-focused foreign policy and reform efforts. The ensuing Russian invasion and occupation of Crimea, aggression in Ukraine’s east, and Kremlin disinformation efforts, cast a shadow over Ukraine’s independence.
